A Wallpaper Gallery is Art a [Black] Millennial Can Afford.

I will never be able to afford to “own” art. At least, I’m not planning to. The biggest gallery that I have is my cell phone wallpaper. And I’m making a switch. I went from Barkley Hendricks for a year….(Shout out to North Philly) to Lorna Simpson and now I’m jumping to Ming Smith.

    I LOVE THIS POST. Keeping a piece of your favorite art on you at all times is great. But with all the artists you know I am sure you can be an art owner as well!! Exchange some skill for art. It can happen. 🙂
